I don't watch Eurovision and about the existence of the group to know the moment of showing the film in the festival "Finnish cinema Week".

"Pertti Kurikka" — punk band from Finland, consisting(vshy) from 4 persons and one administrator. All they suffer from diseases such as the down syndrome and autism. This team was selected  Eurovision in 2015, but in the finale it was not allowed. In General, legitimate decision, but the response of participants — tears, disappointment — it is perhaps the emotional climax of the film.

These people live a full life as we you — smoke, drink, swear, fall in love, become disillusioned, and suffering. And they play the group in the country know very many things about us, "normal", not say.

In the film it is evident that the society makes an effort to give an opportunity to such people not to feel "different", but to really help them very necessary — understanding, patience, and support. They are vital.

The film has some funny moments, forcing a smile. There are fierce trash — Kari is constantly swearing in English, and before the final credits is a recording of the performance on the farewell concert (Pertti decided to leave group 60) — brown out on the scene shorts one sock, and then there is in toe.

What can I say? With one side — the issue of people with disabilities, with other — not to members of the team, but for the audience, occasionally flashing in the frame, it becomes clear that is a punk"culture".

PS finally I learned that is Conchita Vyurst.
